The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding for support and services to Australians under 65 with a permanent and significant disability. The NDIS helps people with disability to:
Access mainstream services and supports required to live an ordinary life and achieve their goals, along with public housing and aged care systems.
Access community services and supports, such as sports clubs, community groups, libraries or charities.
Above and Beyond Care Services works together with the NDIS to provide the help you need to receive required support.
Aged care support (referred to as home care) is offered to Australians over 65 years old, with two main funding streams and are assessed through My Aged Care:
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) is aimed to assist over 65’s to remain independent in their own homes by supplying funding for daily tasks and even help carers with planned respite.
Home Care Packages are tailored at four levels depending on the amount of support needed. Under Consumer Direct Care (CDC), recipients manage their package, not the service provider, offering more control and the ability to change providers.
Some services may be covered by Medicare or Private/Workplace Injury/Motor Vehicle Insurance, which you should check with your provider.
Otherwise self-funding is always an option.
